I am due Christmas day and with my daughter I had her the day before my due date so my doctor asked me if I want to be induced next week. Would you do it or take the chance of going into labor on Christmas?

ETA: I told him no when he suggested it. My husband is capable of taking care of our kids regardless of when I go into labor

I would take my chances, being induced is no fun.

I would never get induced. Only time I would is if there was a medical reason. Even then I would really research and see if it was really necessary. 

My second was born on Valentine's Day.

No I wouldn't get induced just because of Christmas, actually I would want to get induced ON Christmas.

I would never willingly choose to be induced again, but that is just me. Some women have been induced and did great. Mine ended in an emergency c-section, so never again hopefully.

That's what I told him. My husband can handle the kids at home so I'm not worried

No way.  I don't believe in selective inductions just for convenience purposes.

I was induced with my second by choice. As long as everything is ok and the doctor is ok with it I would.
